COVID-19 | The Health Ministry today reported 13,034 new Covid-19 infections, 181 cases shy of the record high.

This is the second time fresh infections have exceeded 13,000 cases.

The highest record was on July 15 where 13,215 new infections were registered.

  • Active cases: 142,051
  • Patients in ICUs: 938
  • Intubated: 459

The climb today was largely contributed by a surge in Selangor and Kuala Lumpur.

Selangor saw new infection rise to above 6,049, the second time the state saw more than 6,000 new cases in a day.

Kuala Lumpur reported 1,611 new cases, the third-highest on record for the federal territory.

New cases in Johor, Negeri Sembilan and Kedah also remain elevated, at more than 700.

Deaths

There were 134 fatalities today, bringing the death toll to 7,574.

Of these, 39 were recorded in Selangor, 32 in Kuala Lumpur, 18 in Negeri Sembilan, 15 in Johor, 7 in Perak, 7 in Malacca, 5 in Pahang, 4 in Kedah, 2 in Penang, 2 in Terengganu, 2 in Labuan, and 1 in Sabah.

While most of the casualties have a history of chronic illness, 30 appear to have a clean bill of health prior to their infection.

Twenty-two (16.4 percent) of the deceased today had already died when brought to a hospital.

These brought-in-dead cases were reported in Kuala Lumpur (8), Selangor (7), Johor (2), Malacca (2), Labuan (2), and Perak (1).
